Qualetra: Quality in Legal Translation Project Launch

Qualetra launches new legal translation project in London

Qualetra – Quality in Legal Translation Conference
London Metropolitan University
Thursday 4 April, 09.30-18.00

Qualetra, a new, EU-funded project addressing legal translation in criminal proceedings, is to launch with a one-day conference in London on Thursday, 4 April 2013. Practitioners and trainers in legal translation are invited to attend.

The aim of the conference is to gauge the current situation of legal translation in Europe, and to present an opportunity for all relevant stakeholders to meet to discuss content.

Project priority will be given to practical results that can be used directly by practitioners and policy makers in their respective Member States.

The project will focus on actions to develop curricula, assessment procedures and certification and accreditation strategies in order to improve the training of legal translators. In addition, the project will develop models for legal practitioners to interact efficiently with legal translation.
